Margaret Posted January 19, 2022 Report Share Posted January 19, 2022 I'm new to this site. I woke up one morning two years ago deaf in my left ear. Apparently nerve damage from a virus. Within a week of my loss, Covid lockdowns began, so I feel like it has been hard to judge the impact on my life. I tried a cross hearing aid to send sound to my right ear for a few months, but it did not seem to improve my hearing that much and was very uncomfortable. Medicare won't pay for a cochlear implant for single sided loss. I'm considering a Bonebridge but am interested in knowing how much help it would be in real-life hearing situations. The MRI compatibility issue is kind of a problem, as I have been recommended to have one annually and the machines in common use are twice as strong as the Bonebridge will tolerate.
